New Softrock RXTX (pre-built)

I have a brand-new "Built Softrock RXTX Ensemble." I am bit embarrassed to be asking this because I may just be overlooking some simple configuration issue. I am using Softrock for operating with WSPR 2.12. I have operated WSPR successfully before with an IC-7600 transceiver, but I can't get WSPR to decode any messages from Softrock. My antenna is OK -- checked it with the other rig and I can hear good WSPR signals. I have a USB sound card, 16-bit, 48K, etc., and I think I have it set up right. WSPR says it is receiving and tries to transmit but no joy. I have tried reversing receive IQs but that didn't help. Computer clock is synced to GPS. Before I take the Softrock out of the case and start troubleshooting the hardware (I have a good oscilloscope) I wonder if anyone has any suggestions. Maybe I missed something. A lot of the online "helps" are confusing -- some old, some new, some contradictions. WSPR experts; Rx Noise is -30 dB and red. Oh yes, I did receive that mysterious "ghost" reception report from JZZ8XZ.

Any suggestions will be sincerely appreciated.
